Short and simple today… I’m feeling icky and just wanna get off my computer, Megan’s dealing with a sick kiddo, and JJ’s had a busy weekend, so Kyle & I are here to make our recommendations for tonight (& then I’m crashing). It’s a busy night with some great stuff on, so see if we can help you narrow it down.
I’m really enjoying the new NBC show Crossing Lines. I love the authentic feel it has to it. The accents don’t seem fake or forced, the locales are fantastic, and the story lines are really great. It’s a different take on cop shows, which are my favorite, so that’s fun to see. We’ve now learned more about Louis’s (Major Daniels) sad story, the death of his son. I hope we’ll continue to find out more to help get him closure. Last week was great because it dealt with truckers who basically set up and kidnap couples that are traveling with their young children, in order to have the adults basically fight to the death against each other. The loser couple’s child was then kept and raised by the mechanic who helped them and his wife. The graves all over the field and then the children walking through at the end? Heartbreaking.
On tonight’s episode, “Special Ops Pt 1,” when a wealthy teenager is taken hostage, the ICC team has to move fast to track the kidnappers. Meanwhile, Anne-Marie finds a connection to a similar case in Florence as the team races to rescue the boy. Elsewhere, Dorn and Louis soon discover an unexpected link to their arch enemy Alexander Dimitrov (guest star Marcel Iures), which puts their lives in danger.
Find out what kind of danger they’re in and if the team can find the hostage tonight on NBC at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Food Court Wars, HGTV Star, Food Network Star, & Whodunnit?.

Tonight, The Newsroom returns to the cable airwaves for the start of its second season on HBO. When we last left the News Night crew, Maggie and Jim had finally kissed, but just as Maggie arrived at Don’s to break things off (again), he made a romantic proposal, asking her to move in with him. Meanwhile, Leona fired Will, but Charlie countered with threatening to turn her son in for phone hacking, unless Will kept his job and she shut down the tabloid news division. Finally, Sloan had a change of heart, deciding to stay with News Night; and MacKensie tried to get Will to tell her how his stoned-dialed voicemail message would have ended had it not cut out.
The number of death threats toward Will on his blog had been increasing—will we find out who’s behind them and if they are serious? Will Will admit his feelings for MacKensie, forgive her infidelity, and get back together this season? Will Maggie finally dump that loser Don for good (fingers-crossed) and start a relationship with Jim?! (I’m having Pam/Jim flashbacks from The Office!) And which 2011/2012 news stories will the series take on this season?
On tonight’s episode, “The First Thing We Do, Let’s Kill All the Lawyers,” Will’s remark on the air gets him KO’d from coverage of the 9/11 anniversary. Meanwhile, Jim volunteers to fill in for a reporter covering the Romney presidential campaign; Neal investigates the beginnings of Occupy Wall Street; and a lawyer for “News Night” questions the staff about a controversial story.
To watch the news come to life, tune in to HBO at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Celebrity Wife Swap, Whodunnit?, Crossing Lines, Food Network Star, Falling Skies, Drop Dead Diva, Devious Maids, Copper, True Blood, Dexter, Ray Donovan, and The Venture Bros..
